According to ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson, the Oakland Raiders will be without cornerback Ronald Bartell for several weeks after he suffered a broken shoulder blade during Monday night’s loss to the Chargers.
“Bartell has a broken left shoulder blade. Because no surgery is needed, his recovery time could be less than six weeks. There is hope he could be back in four weeks. Bartell is meeting with a specialist to get more information,” Williamson reported.
This is a tough break for the Raiders. They brought in Bartell as a free agent to be their number one corner.
